Almond flour and almond meal are great ingredients that are popular for both gluten-free and grain-free diets and can be used in everything from chocolate cake recipes and cookies to meat and vegetable recipes. These two ingredients are quite similar, and sometimes they are even labeled as meal and flour. There is, however, a difference between the two. Both ingredients are made from ground almonds, though almond flour and almond meal have subtle differences that do set them apart. Almond flour as an ingredient is typically made from using blanched almonds which have already had the skins removed, and almond flour are ground more finely than that of almond meal, which is an ingredient that typically still contains the almond skins and has a more coarse grind. If you think of almond flour as something similar to flour, you will be able to differentiate it from almond meal which will have brown flecks in it. Almond flour isn't a type of milled flour, but rather almond meal is finely ground almonds. Almond meal is typically made with blanched almonds and may lack the dark flecks of almond skin, although this isn't always the case. Almond meal is the main ingredient in French macaron recipes and is commonly used for airy cake recipes as well as cookie recipes and quick bread recipes. Almond flour is an ingredient that is readily available in most grocery stores, and is typically stocked in the baking or the gluten-free sections of the grocery store, and might also be labeled as ground almonds, almond meal, or almond powder. Almond meal can also be easily made at home.

Like almond flour used in recipes, almond meal is made from ground almonds, although almond meal typically has more of a coarse texture and also contains the almond skins. Almond meal is commonly used for baked goods such as cookies and quick bread, and because of the coarse texture in almond meal, it can also be used as a substitute for breadcrumbs for coating the meat and topping vegetables and casserole recipes. Almond meal is an ingredient that is readily available in most local grocery stores, and typically stocked in the baking or gluten-free sections, but can also be easily be made at home.
